The six airlines that were approved include: 

American Airlines – will provide 56 weekly flights out of Miami to Holguin, Santa Clara, Matanzas, Cienfuegos and Camaguey.

They will fly to Camaguey five times a week, Cayo Coco three times a week, Cayo Largo Del Sur on Saturdays, Cienfuegos on Mondays and Fridays, Holguin Santiago de Cuba and Santa Clara daily, Manzanillo three times a week and to Matanzas four times week totaling 39 flights to Cuba each week.

Southwest Airlines – was granted flights out of Fort Lauderdale to Matanzas twice daily and daily flights to Santa Clara.

Sun Country Airlines – offers flights from Minneapolis to Santa Clara on Sundays and to Matanzas on Saturdays.

Overall, the six carriers combined provide a total of 155 flights a week from the United States to Cuba.

You might be curious as to why big players in the industry, United and Delta were left off this list and not granted any flights to Cuba as they are two of the world’s largest international airlines. Delta did not apply to fly anywhere but to Havana and requested authorization to fly out of Atlanta, New York JFK, Miami and Orlando. United also requested to fly to Havana from Newark, O’Hare, Houston Bush and Washington Dulles. As of right now, the USDOT has not announced who will get to fly to Havana, but twenty daily round trips between the US and Havana are expected to be awarded to these two carriers plus others.
